This was one of the best restaurant experience we have ever had. We loved the decor inside, they had gone to a real effort to make the place look enchanting and romantic. They had extra touches like-a free rose+free portrait picture for us to take home, both free and a nice momento to take home. The food was amazing and... More

What can I add ? Only average. Tried here on a recommendation and found some dishes good and others just average. Service was definitely off on our night but to be fair we will try again and report back.

Had our evening meal in The Fiddlers last night, and I have to say it was beautiful and great value for money,, waiting staff great and couldn't do enough to help, going again on Sunday for the carvery, which I totally recommend, the roast stuffed duck is the best ever.

Second visit this week and delighted with the food, friendly service and atmosphere. Live Piano music in the background was very enjoyable and modern music selection was refreshing. Happy to recommend.
